The Dark Age Of Social Engineering
‘The guiding hand’

Where do our ideas come from? We can all be accused of racism and intolerance, but what is behind the recent speed of change in demographics? Of course, people will react. Are our natural cultures losing their uniqueness? Are genders being squeezed together to confuse? Are town shopping centres all looking the same? Are authorities becoming heavy-handed? Are more people in debt? Why is there music/noise everywhere? The list goes on and on …

Ideas and distractions are constantly circulated into the population via the media through fashion, music, science, religion, sexuality, education … the list goes on and on. These ideas can have an immediate or long term effect.

The people who propagate these ideas are the gossips, the busy-bodies, the trolls, the fear-mongers, the jobsworths spreading the ‘news’. Unwittingly, we become part of smear campaigns, quick to point the finger away from where ideas originated.

To understand the ‘news’, we have to read between the lines, looking beyond explicit statements to see their effect, and ask ourselves where our ideas came from.

The Establishment is a dominant group or elite that holds power or authority in a nation or organisation. People come and go, but the Establishment constantly secures its place and looks after its own. This is the same in any organisation: once on top, they want to stay on top.

“All that glitters is not gold” is a well-known saying, meaning that not everything that looks precious or true turns out to be so: this can apply to people, places, things and ideas that promise to be more than they really are.

Tainted information contaminates purity. Our minds are tainted with concepts. We only have to recognise them to be released from them, to become free and ultimately enlightened. If we don’t, we stay dumb and subservient.

Authentic meditation is reality, and not just mindfulness meditation. Mindfulness may make us better at whatever we are doing, but it can enslave us because we become enthralled, captured by fascination. So near, yet so far.

Authentic awareness meditation reveals the effect of social engineering: it uncovers all those hang ups we have about ourselves and what, in fact, this manufactured self is made of. We see what is going on.

When does this social engineering start?
When we are young!

From the film “South Pacific”:

You’ve got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You’ve got to be taught
From year to year,
It’s got to be drummed
In your dear little ear

You’ve got to be carefully taught.

You’ve got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made,
And people whose skin is a diff’rent shade,
You’ve got to be carefully taught.

You’ve got to be taught before it’s too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You’ve got to be carefully taught!
